Sara Lee Corporation expanded its contract with OHL, making the logistics company the end-to-end supply chain provider for all of Sara Lee’s international household and beverage business.
OHL started working with Sara Lee 12 years ago providing contract logistics services in Plainfield, Ind., and Sparks, Nev. OHL will now handle air and ocean freight forwarding, customs brokerage services, drayage, inbound and outbound transportation for the whole household and beverage network. OHL also provides Sara Lee with value added services including assembling and shipping end cap display racks, repackaging products and applying store specific SKU’s for four major retail stores.
“Our relationship with OHL has been solid since the beginning, and because of our positive track record, we wanted to work with them on a fully integrated supply chain strategy,” said Jody Holder, director of supply chain for North America for Sara Lee. “We are confident in OHL’s ability to streamline operations and improve our time to market because of OHL’s door-to-door coverage of the global supply chain.”
Sara Lee has complete visibility into the entire supply chain by using tools such as e-Focus, which provides visibility for inbound ocean containers from their point of origin to the DC, and Oracle Transportation Management to manage all inbound and outbound freight. This integrated platform ensures data accuracy and streamlined processes for maximum efficiency.
